    Did anyone see the ads for MW3 and BF3 during the half time breaks on the footy today? BF3 looks great. Nice sequence of a dogfight.

    Dunno if they have been seen before today :)

    Isn't there an app for that (yea, I did it lol)? I'm sure there's some app you can download that watches all your ebay stuff and snipes for you?

    there is an app
    http://www.auctionsniper.com/
    It was supposed to be banned by ebay,but logically why would they ban people from bidding unless it causes enough of an uproar and turns ebayers away.
    i would sooner do it the honest way
    (probably save myself a bundle by walking away when the prices get ridiculous anyway!)
    The other side of the coin is that its quite amusing to watch the price of osmething your selling skyrocket in the last couple of minutes.

    I don't like getting mass bids at the end of something im selling because i get scared it will go for a really low price. Most of the time i just put a reserve on though.

    EDIT: I dont like sniping, i dont usually do it but i had to since that auction had loads of small bids right up till the dying seconds.

    I remeber reading up on the best tactics for getting the lowest price,and its no surprise that sniping reaps the rewards.
    The mrs has got some function on her fone where it lets you know when something your
    watching is about to finish,its just a shame my fingers are too big to operate her fone :)

    I just put opening bids on whatever it is that i am looking for,then search out multiples of that item,looking for badly spelled stuff has worked for me in the past too!

    I know what you mean about stuff selling undervalue,the very first thing i sold on ebay should have gone for £120 but it went for £15...And the guy tried to take me to the cleaners,swapped in his old damaged item and claimed it was mine!
    UV pens work a treat though :)
    I was fuming anyway but no/low feedback sellers always stand that chance if they haven't eastablished themselves.
    I do prefer to start stuff low so everyone gets a chance to bite onto the dream,tbh i got so much crap i gathered over the years,the initial price/value is irrelevant...i just want the space back!

    i think my best bargain was a peugeot 306 xsi for £80 with t+t,i drove it home and put a concrete weight from a washing machine (that the council wouldnt take) in the boot and then drove it to the scrappers to weigh the car in and walked away with £370 :D
    with the gov scrappage scheme i would prob only get 100 for it now ...

    Beware, many years back i bought a cheap set of creative 5.1's brandnew for about £35, it was good for a while until the wired remote that came with it started to play up. one moment the sound was inaudible then the next moment it was really freaking loud and i had to jam a guitar plectrum in the remote to keep the volume level. but on occasion it would still happen randomly.

    I cant remember what the model number was. but i still have them in my shed somwhere

    good to know, thanks mate. this one was a no reserve set, for some reason it didn't light up like crazy, guess it was an older set so it was not so sought after

    only 5 grand!
    psh pocket change,i might buy one for my deaf aunty
    that should be good for around 200 w/side with 4 6550s in push pull
    though swapping them out for kt88's would be sensible for a bit of weight in the low end.
    5 grand though!

    if youre looking to valves -- dont buy from Watfordvalves they are terrible. buy from hotroxuk instead. thats where i get all the valves from my amps from. all valves are tested before they leave the shop to ensure you dont get a duff one.
